Rugby World Cup 2023: France’s record-breaking night 

With 14 tries and the biggest win in their history, Les Blais enjoyed a perfect evening in Marseille on Thursday (96-0) at Rugby World Cup. But Antoine Dupont’s injury cast a shadow over the evening.

In the 76th minute of the match between France and Namibia on Thursday, September 21, French striker Thomas Ramos stepped up at the Stade Vélodrome in Marseille to convert the goal that his teammate Melvin Jaminet had just scored.

Les Blais was ahead by 87 points and his kicking had no effect on the result. So this conversion, just to the right of the posts, could have been a simple detail.

Yet the Stade Toulousain forward’s effort to hit the ball between the posts was enough to ensure this Rugby World Cup group match goes down in France’s annals. Taking the score to 89 points, France broke the record for the most points scored in an international match.

Record-Breaking Victory for France

The previous record dates back to 2007, when the French beat Namibia 87-10 in a Rugby World Cup match. A few minutes earlier, the biggest gap between the French team and the opponent, also dating back to that match in 2007, had been overcome.

Admittedly, the Namibian opponents on the night were weak, shuffled and even outnumbered after their captain Johan Deysel was sent off early in the second half following a head-to-head clash with his colleague Antoine Dupont.

The nature of the latter’s injury is still unknown: coach Fabien Galthier told the press immediately after the match that he suspected a crack or fracture of the jaw. The captain, scrum-half and undisputed leader of the France team was taken to hospital in the evening for tests.

Eddie’s alarming answer after letting Australia down at Rugby World Cup

Eddie Jones believes he could lose his job as Wallabies coach after the Rugby World Cup and says he has let down Australian rugby with his shock results this year. Jones spoke to the press in Lyon on Friday after naming number 10 Ben Donaldson and Dave Porecchi as captain for Monday’s (AEST) match against Wales.

He was bombarded with questions from the Australian and British press and seemed resigned to his fate if the Wallabies lost and failed to reach the quarter-finals for the first time. Listen, I let a fellow Australian rugby player down, Jones said.

I didn’t do the job I was invited to do. They brought me in to fix everything. That’s why I feel this responsibility. Jones has a 1-6 record since replacing Dave Rennie as coach in January. He first joined the bulk of Rennie’s squad before starting a dramatic youth movement and dismissing experienced players including Michael Hooper and Quade Cooper.

Jones’s Contract for 2027 Rugby World Cup

Jones has a contract for the 2027 Rugby World Cup in Australia but has given cryptic messages about his future in various interviews. There will be a review after the RWC, Jones said. And given our results, maybe Australian Rugby doesn’t want to leave me. This is the reality of the work in which I live. And I understand that.

I know people upset about it and I understand that, but as a fan I would be going too far because the results aren’t good enough. But sometimes… you have to go through some pain before you succeed. Jones said he was blocking outside criticism, which had been harsh and widespread. For more about Rugby World Cup Tickets please visit our website.

I don’t listen to this noise. I don’t even know what Drew Mitchell said. Have no idea what David Campese said. I’d rather aim here and not reach it. Our results weren’t good enough, and I understand that. But we are trying to build a team that fulfills the dreams of Australian rugby.

Wales Vs Georgia Tickets | RWC Tickets
Wales Vs Georgia Tickets | RWC Tickets

“We’re not trying to be a mediocre team. If we’re trying to be a mediocre team, there are other things we could do. We want to be a really good team, and being a really good team comes with some pain and failure. good team.”

Jones’s Continuing Motivation

Jones, who led Australia to the Rugby World Cup final and England to the 2019 RWC decider, said his motivation and competitiveness remained as strong as ever. I love winning and I love the challenge of trying to create a team where everyone thinks they’re going to lose in order to put themselves in a position to win. I don’t know if it’s a drug, but it’s my coach’s impulse. You get more people when they smell blood.

“We have 10 times more people here than we normally would at an Australian press conference because people can smell the blood. That makes it even more exciting.”

WALLABIES (15-1): Andrew Kellaway, Mark Nawaqanitawase, Jordan Petaia, Samu Kerevi, Marika Koroibete, Ben Donaldson, Tate McDermott, Rob Valetini, Tom Hooper, Rob Leota, Richie Arnold, Nick Frost, James Slipper, Dave Porecki (c), Angus Bell

Eddie Jones facing the ‘reality’ of his job security post-Rugby World Cup

Eddie Jones has said he is unsure about his coaching future with the Wallabies if they fail to beat Wales in Sunday’s Rugby World Cup Group C match in Lyon. Australia can ill afford to lose this match as it would almost certainly mean they will be knocked out of the group stage of a global tournament for the first time in the tournament’s history.

Jones said a review take place after the Rugby World Cup and while he is contract for the next tournament in 2027 in Australia, he said he may not in charge of the Wallabies at that time.

Jones has struggled since taking the reins from Dave Rennie in January, with the Wallabies winning just one of seven Tests under his leadership. There will be a review at the end of the RWC and given the results we’ve achieved, Rugby Australia may not want to keep me, he told AAP.

“That’s the reality of the job I live in, and I understand that.”

Jones had linked with a return to Japan to take charge of the Brave Blossoms and a journalist had repeatedly questioned his commitment to the Wallabies. But the experienced coach refused to answer, saying he is only focus on the upcoming clash with Wales, who are setting the pace at the top of Group C .

Worries About Training Against Wales

I’m just worry about training against Wales this week, Jones said. He received a lot of criticism when he selected a young Wallabies team for the Rugby World Cup, discarding several experienced players such as long-serving captain Michael Hooper and halfback Quade Cooper.

Although his side are struggling to achieve the results they want, Jones insists he has no regrets and said he is willing to make tough decisions to improve Australian rugby despite fans’ disappointment with their poor results.

Wales Vs Georgia Tickets | RWC Tickets
Wales Vs Georgia Tickets | RWC Tickets

I’m not trying to make myself look like a saint, but sometimes you have to make difficult decisions to get further results, Jones said. I have no doubt that we will win on Sunday, given the way the team has prepared and come together.

But if we don’t, sometimes you’ll have to do the work that will allow you to be successful later on. I don’t know of any team where you can come in and break the magic, you have to go through a process, you have to figure out what’s wrong with the team and then you have to try. to solve these problems.

“So I’m sitting here very comfortable, feeling like I’m doing the job I’m supposed to do. I know people are upset about it and I understand that because the results aren’t good enough, but sometimes there’s some pain before you get some success.”

Defends decision to play youngsters

Jones asked why he didn’t wait until after the current Rugby World Cup to make such changes, but said he needed to introduce the young players now. These guys have been there, the results over the last period of time have not been what they should be, and our results are even worse, but sometimes you have to do it to move forward, he added.

Wales Vs Georgia Tickets | RWC Tickets
Wales Vs Georgia Tickets | RWC Tickets

We need to create a new group of players with higher standards of training, higher standards of behavior and higher standards of expectation; that’s what we’re trying to do, mate. I don’t think waiting is the right answer; you need to start building a team.

Rugby World Cup – Gatland to recall big names for Wales’ crunch RWC clash with Australia

Warren Gatland is expected to make massive changes to the crunch clash with Australia this Sunday. Warren Gatland is set to recall his star players for Wales’ crucial Rugby World Cup match against Australia, with Ryan Elias expected to get the nod over co-captain Dewey Lake.

Having made 13 changes for the win over Portugal, which was reduced to 12 when Jacques Morgan came on at the last minute for Tommy Reffell, Gatland looks set to return to the majority of the team that got Wales’ Rugby World Cup campaign off to a great start against Fiji, with Morgan taking on the captaincy role.

One controversial decision could be the selection of Scarlets hooker Elias over Lake. The Ospreys hooker is extremely effective on the field, but Wales’ lineout fell apart in the second half against Portugal.

Key Lineup Changes for Wales Against Fiji

Gatland is expected to favor Elias’ accuracy at the lineout against Fiji, as well as his prowess in the scrum. The New Zealander is also expected to recall the likes of Dan Biggar, Liam Williams, Louis Rees-Zammit, Josh Adams, Gareth Davies, Nick Thompkins and George North.

But Wales are also looking to form Leicester Tigers opener Tommy Reffell and former England tighthead Henry Thomas, who are both suffering from calf injuries. Wales are yet to lose in France but Fiji’s shock win over the Wallabies has left Group C wide open.

Eddie Jones is also reportedly expected to shake up his Australia squad, with Ben Donaldson expected to move from full-back to outside half-back in place of Carter Gordon, while power forwards Taniela Tupou and Skelton remain sidelined due to for injuries.

If Wales beat Australia in Lyon on Sunday, it would see the former world champions crash out of a pool tournament for the first time in their history. But if Wales lose, they too could face that when it comes to reaching the last eight of this competition.

Wales prop Gareth Thomas eyeing Rugby World Cup quarter-final berth against Australia

Gareth Thomas says it would be amazing if Wales beat Australia and book their place in the quarter-finals of the Rugby World Cup with one game closer to the distance. Wales take on the Wallabies in Lyon on Sunday knowing victory will confirm one of the two qualifying spots from Group C.

England or Argentina are likely to finish in the last eight in Marseille next month, with Wales maintaining a 100 per cent play-off record under head coach Warren Gatland for four consecutive RWC campaigns.

Wales then have a break next week before completing their group match against Georgia in Nantes. When we came here we always wanted to win every game in the group and nothing has changed, Wales international Thomas said.

“We have the same mindset. We want to go out there, perform and win. It would be an amazing feeling, wouldn’t it, to win a third time? We want nothing more than this. We’re looking forward to this weekend and then we’ll have a couple of days to recover from that.”

While Wales take the box seat, Australia must win to have any chance of progressing from a group that also includes Fiji, Georgia and Portugal. A 22-15 defeat to Fiji in Saint-Etienne last weekend raised the prospect of Australia failing to reach the quarter-finals, its lowest achievement in all nine previous Rugby World Cup campaigns.

Australia’s record in the tournament against Wales is nonetheless good, having beaten them five times in seven attempts, but they will undoubtedly be weakened in the last meeting by the absence of injured forwards Taniela Tupou and Will Skelton.

Rugby World Cup  – Wales Remains Focused on Winning All Pool Games

Thomas added: They will always be dangerous when you play against them. We wanted to come here with the intention of winning all the pool games and nothing has changed for us. So whether they win or lose, it doesn’t change anything for us. For more about Wales Rugby World Cup Tickets please visit our website.

We actually take a lot of confidence from the game against Fiji and Portugal and what we’ve done all summer and feel we can only get better. We know it will be a big physical competition and we are looking forward to going out there.

“It really doesn’t matter to me whether they (Tupou and Skelton) are in the team or not. Behind us are our heavyweights Will (Rowlands), Birdie (Adam Beard) and Dough (Dafydd Jenkins). They are all heavy boys and so is Christ (Tsiunza). We ourselves have enough strength.”

Thomas is one of 16 Wales players to feature in the inaugural RWC campaign and he is enjoying the experience on and off the field. Wales assistant coach Alex King compared the team to a band of brothers, with Thomas saying: There’s something special about every Rugby World Cup game, so we watch them and just enjoy them because there’s a big buzz about everything.

We have fine committees. The (final) sheet came out with all the penalties and Nick Thompkins got a decent score. He was wearing the wrong shirt and was a little late to observation after the Fiji game because his alarm didn’t go off. It’s all a lot of fun.

“I’m an environmentalist, so I make sure everything is clean, take the empty bottles and put them in the bin. That’s my job – the guy who tells everyone to put their stuff away.”

Eddie Jones set to rip up Australia team with shock calls for Wales Rugby World Cup clash

The Wallabies coach is set to make some big changes ahead of their must-win Rugby World Cup clash with Wales. Eddie Jones is set to throw a curveball ahead of Australia’s must-win RWC clash with Wales, replacing halfback Carter Gordon and moving fullback Ben Donaldson to the number 10 shirt.

Wales Vs Australia Tickets | RWC Tickets
Wales Vs Australia Tickets | RWC Tickets

Gordon is heavily targeted by Fiji during the Wallabies’ historic 22-15 defeat in Saint-Etienne when the seven-cap player at fault for a Jozua Tuisaova try after failing to deal with a high ball.

Australia are due to name their team on Friday morning but the Sydney Morning Herald reports Jones will make some big changes as he looks to keep the Wallabies in contention for the play-offs and Donaldson will trusted in the half as Andrew Kellaway prepares to take over 15th place.

Defeat to Wales would not knock Australia out of the group stage entirely for the first time in Rugby World Cup history, but would force them to rely on Fiji losing to either Georgia or Portugal.

Jones initially backed the inexperienced Gordon heading into this Rugby World Cup, leaving veteran out-half Quade Cooper from his 33-man squad for France. However, the performance in Fiji appears to have caused Jones to lose faith in the 22-year-old.

Donaldson will step into the role of a trusted defender in the first two games of this tournament. Despite playing most of his club rugby for the Waratahs at number 10, he only started one game in that position for the Wallabies.

Wallabies Recall Experience Against Wales

Ironically, it is against Wales in Cardiff last year when the Wallabies beaten 34-13 and pulled off a remarkable victory in the final quarter. It should be noted that when Donaldson left the game in the 54th minute, the Wallabies not yet begun to reduce their 21-point deficit.

As for Kellaway, he will make his Rugby World Cup debut, having selected as a defender in both the Bledisloe Cup games and the final warm-up match against France. Jones is understood have train with striker Mark Navaganitawase at fullback earlier this week but decided to.

Wales Vs Australia Tickets | RWC Tickets
Wales Vs Australia Tickets | RWC Tickets

Gordon can still named on the bench, while scrum-half Tate McDermott is set to start after returning from the concussion he suffer against Georgia.

With prop Taniela Tupou and lock Will Skelton both ruled out by Jones earlier in the week, the Wallabies’ tight-headed scrum will be an interesting choice. Experienced James Slipper rallied there against Fiji, but injured Pone Fa’amausili addressed the media on Wednesday, saying he will fit to play.

“Yes, the body feels very good, he said. Obviously it’s a slow start to the campaign, but I’m ready to get started this week.”

Replacement Search for Injured Max Jorgensen in Rugby World Cup

Away from the team that will face Wales, the Wallabies are yet to call up a replacement for rookie Max Jorgensen, who suffered an ankle injury late in the Rugby World Cup this week. The 19-year-old broke his fibula after landing poorly while receiving a high ball in training.

Waratahs teammate Dylan Pietsch is initially expect to called up as a substitute. However, it is understood that after telling to pack his bags and hit the road. Instead, the call could have received by one of the many Australians currently playing for the Barbarians in the UK.

Rugby World Cup – The best and worst performing goal kickers and their stats

The Rugby World Cup is the sport’s biggest event and teams spend years building up to become a global showpiece, making every point mean that much more.  Several players have started their campaign with a flawless tee shot, but none have hit as many successful shots as Italy’s Tomasso Allan, who holed all eight of his shots in his side’s dominant win over Namibia.

England’s hero against Argentina, George Ford, had a flawless day from the tee, hitting six shots on target to complement his three goals conceded. Brave Blossoms key player Rikiya Matsuda repeated his 6/6 performance from the tee against Chile.

Three other players managed 100% tee times, but with noticeably fewer attempts: Fijian Frank Lomani made it 2/2, while Scot Finn Russell and Georgian Tedo Abzhandadze scored their only shots.

Near perfect

In the opening weekend of the Rugby World Cup, this group of players scored 70% or better. Ireland’s Johnny Sexton was nearly perfect, scoring 87.5% for 7/8, all of which were converted as his side ran riot against Romania. It was a dream first start as a fullback for Wallabies star Ben Donaldson, who was nearly flawless off the tee, missing just one of his seven attempts at an impressive 85.7% to add to his pair of tries.

Rounding out the category was Welshman Dan Biggar, who converted 71.4% of his shots on goal, equating to 5/7, which proved instrumental in keeping Fiji within striking distance.

Chasing pack

The rest of the goalies fall into the same category, led by the duo expected to be at the top of the list. France defender Thomas Ramos was unusually cold from the field for his high standards, scoring 6/9 at 67%. So did the typically brilliant Argentine Emiliano Boffelli, who scored the same percentage but at 2/3.

Next in line is Springboks scrum-half Faf de Klerk after taking over kicking duties from Many Libbock. Livewire managed 50%, making 1/2; The same statistics were shared by three more players – Romanian Gabriel Rupanu, Georgian Luka Matkava and Chilean Santiago Videla.

Despite lighting up the attack with a lackluster cross-shot, Libbock struggled off the tee, making 2/5 for 40%. All-black Richie Mo’unga was surprisingly inaccurate against France, converting just one of his three attempts for 33%, while Namibia’s Tiaan Swanepoel and Fiji’s Teti Tela were equal.

Rugby World Cup 2023 – Dan Biggar rested as Wales make 13 changes for next clash

Warren Gatland opted to make 13 changes to his squad to face Fiji; Louis Rees-Zammit and Taulupe Faletau are the only players remaining in the starting line-up; Wales will continue their Rugby  World Cup campaign against Portugal in Group C on Saturday (4.45pm UK time);

Dan Biggar has given Wales head coach Warren Gatland a rest as he makes 13 changes to his squad to face Portugal in the second match of the Rugby World Cup.

Louis Rees-Zammit and Taulupe Faletau are the only players remaining in the starting line-up from Wales’ opening match against Fiji, while Leigh Halfpenny has emerged as one of the more prominent players at fullback for his 101st cap.

Tomos Williams will make his 50th international appearance and Gareth Anscombe will make his first half start of the tournament. Gatland also made four Rugby World Cup debuts, with Dewey Lake captaining the side at hooker, Jonny Williams and Mason Grady at center and Christ Tshiunza at lock.

Wales Vs Australia Tickets | RWC Tickets
Wales Vs Australia Tickets | RWC Tickets

Lake is joined by Nicky Smith and Dillon Lewis in the front row, Dafydd Jenkins partners Tshiunza in the second row and Rio Dyer is paired on the wing with Rees-Zammit.

Dan Lydiate starts at blindside flanker while Tommy Reffell makes his first start of the year at blindside flanker and Faletau continues at number 8 to finish out the game and get some more game time after recently returning from a calf injury .

Wales Makes Key Changes Ahead of Portugal Clash

Wales’ replacements include Gareth Davies, Sam Costelow and Josh Adams in the back row, Ryan Elias, Corey Domachowski and Thomas Francis in the front row and Adam Beard as cover in the second row. Thane Basham, who is also preparing to make his Rugby World Cup debut, will be the latest striker change. We’ve made a few changes this week given the six-day period, Gatland said.

Now this is an opportunity for the 23rd round. I’ve said it before, but there is a lot of competition within the team and that’s what we want to see. Now this group has a chance to go out on Saturday and put their mark on the tournament.

We’ve done a thorough analysis of last week’s game and know the areas we need to improve. But, we have a clear plan for how we want to play on Saturday and it’s about going out and executing it the way we prepared. For more about Wales Rugby World Cup Tickets please visit our website.

“Portugal are a skilled team and will be charging forward in their first match of the tournament this weekend. We are delighted to be back there and look forward to even greater support from the traveling fans in Nice.”

Wales beat Fiji 32-26 in their opening match last weekend, but Saturday’s meeting should theoretically be the easiest game of their campaign as they take on the lowest-ranked team in Group C.

Secret bonuses if Wallabies win Rugby World Cup revealed

Rugby Australia has agreed to reward the Wallabies with lucrative bonuses if they perform well at the Rugby World Cup, with players receiving an extra $175,000 each if Australia manage to lift the trophy.

Before the Wallabies left for France last month, the RA and the Rugby Union Players’ Association agreed on what bonuses players should receive on top of their regular match pay. In addition to the windfall for breaking the 24-year Rugby World Cup drought, players will also be rewarded for reaching the quarter-finals. This is only the second time this last four player bonus has been offered.

RA and RUPA wanted details of bonus payouts to remain confidential, but this headline could reveal how much players are set to earn if they get deeper into the tournament. Each member of the 33-man playing squad will take home an extra $175,000 if Australia wins the Rugby World Cup final on October 28 in Paris, but according to people with knowledge of the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Given the team’s performances of late – the Wallabies have just won six of their last 23 Tests – winning the Rugby World Cup seems unlikely, but with Eddie Jones at the helm as coach, anything is possible.

That’s a 40 per cent increase on the $125,000 that was on offer in 2019 if the Wallabies won the tournament. That same year, Australia lost to England in the quarter-finals in Japan. In 2015, the Australian Rugby Union (now RA) offered players an all-or-nothing $100,000 reward for winning the final, but the team lost to New Zealand after the Twickenham decider.

Players Incentivized to Reach Rugby World Cup Semi-Finals

Meanwhile, there is another incentive – not seen for 16 years – that the RA and RUPA have agreed upon that may be more achievable given the Wallabies pay bookmakers $15 to win the Rugby World Cup. If the Wallabies reach the semi-finals, the players will receive $25,000 each. The last time the incentive to reach the semi-finals was in 2007, it has never been so lucrative.

However, as part of this agreement it is understood that no additional money will be paid if the Wallabies win the semi-final and progress to the final at the Stade de France. But if the Wallabies repeat the exploits of John Eales’ successful team in 1999, they will demand an additional $150,000 on top of their total award of $175,000.

RA chief executive Phil Waugh refused to go into detail last week when asked how much players could earn if they perform well at the Rugby World Cup. We’ve been working with the players’ association for some time now and it’s very much in line with what we’ve done historically at the RWC, Waugh said.

“The deeper you go, the better the prize money, but what’s really important is the impact it has on rugby at home rather than the financial side. You can achieve greater participation, greater interest and commercial benefits. This is definitely not the result of one or two games you delve into. We have a good relationship with RUPA and the players.”

In 2015, the ARU bet up to $300,000 on the Wallabies to win the Rugby World Cup to cover up to $3.1 million in tournament winning bonuses. However, in 2011, the offer for reaching the final was $25,000, with an additional $85,000 guaranteed for winning the World Championship. Australia finished third.

Historical Bonuses for Wallabies in 2007 Rugby World Cup

Four years ago, in 2007, the Wallabies offered a $10,000 bonus if they reached the semi-finals and a further $42,250 if they reached the last two finals. The team could have won $137,000 if they had made it to the end, but lost to England in the quarter-finals in Marseille, where they will play a potential round of 16 match again this year.

The Wallabies beat Georgia 35-15 in their opening Rugby World Cup match last weekend and will take on Fiji on Sunday (1.45am Monday AEDT). Australia also includes Wales and Portugal and, if things go well, will likely face Argentina or England in the quarter-finals.

Rugby World Cup – Prince William Supports Wales at RWC

The Prince of Wales, 41, was in Bordeaux, France, on Sunday to attend the Rugby World Cup group stage match between Wales and Fiji. Prince William’s sporting event at the Stade de Bordeaux came a day after his wife Kate Middleton attended another Rugby World Cup group stage match in France, where she supported England against Argentina. The divergent plans are not surprising, since the Prince and Princess of Wales compete in rugby!

While Prince William supports Wales in rugby, Princess Kate cheers for England. This is because William is a long-standing patron of the Welsh Rugby Union, while Kate is a patron of the Rugby Football Union and Rugby Football League, which govern the game in England.

Queen Elizabeth tapped her for rugby roles in February 2022, reassigning roles previously held by Prince Harry. The Duke of Sussex stepped back from his royal role with his wife Meghan Markle in 2020, and rugby’s involvement became the first that Queen Elizabeth handed over to another family member.

Prince William’s Patronage of the Welsh Rugby Union

Prince William became patron of the Welsh Rugby Union after his grandmother, the Queen, stepped down in 2016, and it was likely for a practical reason beyond William’s well-documented love of the sport: strengthening his ties to Wales.

William and Kate lived in Wales for the first two years of their marriage, and King Charles named his eldest son the Prince of Wales (the traditional title of the male heir to the throne) in his first speech as sovereign since Queen Elizabeth’s death last year.

Raising the stakes for the Rugby World Cup, Prince William and Princess Kate have cheered for their teams when they played in the past. previously. They watched the Wales v England Six Nations rugby match at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff in February, but it was Princess Kate who returned home with bragging rights as England triumphed. A year earlier, the couple brought their eldest son, Prince George, to the game.

Prince William’s Sporting Loyalties: Football and Rugby

Rivalries between British sports teams can be fierce and Prince William is a passionate supporter of England football teams in his capacity as President of the Football Association. When asked last year if he would support England or Wales at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, he remained diplomatic.

“I support both. I support England more in football, but Wales in rugby, William said, according to Wales Online reporter Will Hayward. When I was growing up, Wales didn’t make it to the tournaments. Getting to the Rugby World Cup is a big deal and I will support Wales throughout this process.”

Prince William’s trip to Bordeaux comes less than two weeks before King Charles and Queen Camilla visit the same city. Buckingham Palace announced in late August that the 74-year-old king and 76-year-old queen would travel to France in September for a rescheduled state visit. The couple had originally planned to travel in March for the first foreign tour of the king’s reign, which was later postponed due to protests and unrest over changes to pensions for French workers.

Ahead of their upcoming trip, Charles and Camilla will visit Paris and Bordeaux for three days from September 20 to 22 to celebrate the “shared history, culture and values” between Britain and France, according to the report. The visit will be Charles’s 35th official visit to France and Camilla’s ninth.

The palace also confirmed that the king and queen will attend a magnificent state banquet at the Palace of Versailles on the outskirts of Paris and tour an organic vineyard in the southwestern city of Bordeaux. There will also be celebrations for the Rugby World Cup, which William and Kate are proud to support.

Eddie Jones is getting booed at the Rugby World Cup but he’s turned Australia into dark horses

Jones admits he will remain persistently unpopular even as Australia finally showed signs of improvement with Georgia. An Eddie Jones press conference is always worth attending, often more worthy than the games his team plays. This year, of course, that was the case.

The 35-15 Rugby World Cup win over Georgia on Saturday was the Australians’ first win of 2023 and Jones’ first as Australia coach since 2005. Five defeats in a row is the worst result in the 63-year-old’s legendary international career. stole the headlines during his team’s departure from Australia by telling reporters in attendance that they themselves were part of the problem with the country’s rugby team.

Mixed Reception for Eddie Jones

It’s unclear whether that had an impact on the boos and jeers that rang out from the near-capacity Stade de France on Saturday night, but there was no shortage of clarity as to what the majority of fans thought of him. At least it’s consistent, Jones joked afterward, cracking a familiar wry smile.

“You either want to be popular or you want to be unpopular, and I’m constantly unpopular, so that’s okay. I can handle this.”

He’ll have no problem with popularity if this is the start of the Aussies’ journey to the finals in October, where a few quiet voices wonder if they can end up. For more about Wales Rugby World Cup Tickets please visit our website.

They remain silent because it’s just one win against a poor Georgian team that scored two tries and should have scored two more if not for a dropped ball and a failed counter-attack: David Niniashvili’s panicky offload after he got into trouble with the last one, fell straight into the ball. Taniel Tupou’s hands and Australia scored one pass later.

That moment was likely a 14-point turnaround that, if things had gone the other way, would have significantly changed the tone of Jones’ postgame press conference.

Be that as it may, the first match of Australia went largely according to plan. Jones, who has often eschewed conventional notions of ‘positions’ in rugby, selected Ben Donaldson to fill the full-back position.

Carter Gordon’s Standout Performance

He had spent the entire Rugby World Cup camp practicing in the second half, but Jones wanted an extra goal-kicking option and it paid off: Donaldson scored 25 points, 20 with his boot, and received the Man of the Match award. I think he’s a very, very good rugby player, Jones said afterwards, enjoying

He’s got a pretty good level of decision-making and he’s got a pretty good game at 10 or 15 in terms of his kicking, so I’m not sure what the Waratahs didn’t see in it, but that’s their business, not mine. Without a club next year, Donaldson has now become irreplaceable for Australia, according to a leading Sydney commentator.

It is somewhat ironic that Donaldson only trained at full-back in the Rugby Championship because Australia had Carter Gordon, their current starting half-back, and Quade Cooper in their squad. Cooper dropped by Jones before the World Championships in one of the biggest shocks.

In addition to his tee shot, Donaldson adds the mastery of his hand kick, an element that has become the hallmark of Jones’s Australia. As England coach, he hired two unknown analysts to help him work on their kicking game, measuring the length of kicks into the box and the hang time with military precision to understand the ideal kick and improve ball retention.

Australia’s Kicking Dominance Against Georgia

Indeed, Australia kicked Georgia’s goal 40 times over a distance of 1,535 meters and retook 25 of them. In sweltering heat, a grueling chase left Georgia gasping for breath before a huge pack of Australians dominated a team whose entire rugby culture has traditionally built around the physicality of their forwards.

And although captain Will Skelton led by example in the second row, it was all down to his kicking. Midfielder Gordon and striker Mark Navaganitawase were excellent kickers, but Donaldson’s cultured and powerful boot stood out.

“I didn’t have the best year at Super but to have his support from the start… he’s a world class coach so whenever he picks you in the team you feel like you’re doing something right, said Donaldson.”

Just having his support meant the world to me and I worked even harder to restore his faith. And I’m just glad we were able to put on a show for him tonight. That’s what Jones does. Naturally, he would have liked to get a few wins in the lead-up to the Rugby World Cup, but the results have created a cohesive team and a siege mentality.

His outburst on leaving Australia was straight out of a Sir Alex Ferguson or Jose Mourinho playbook, straying from what might otherwise be described as the worst team to ever leave these shores for a rugby World Cup. You’re either with Eddie or you’re not: it’s not always clear why, but he supports his “guys.”

Before the tournament, Jones asked what he thought the trend in rugby would be this Rugby World Cup. This is a good question. You must have spent a lot of time on this. I’m impressed, he respond with a classic Jones compliment.

The Importance of Precision in the Rugby World Cup

The ball in play, especially against big countries like France or South Africa, is really short. But periods of the game are so intense. You can’t afford to make a mistake at a time in the game that suits big forwards like us.

“And then you will have one opportunity, with your back turned, to take advantage of it. You have to be so fearless, both in your running lines and in your passing. Your support game has to be so good to take advantage of these opportunities, and we’re starting to develop that.”

Like the man who replaced him, Steve Borthwick, Jones had just nine months and a few precious games to try and make a difference. So this team is a work in progress. The only thing I know about the Rugby World Cup is that you want to get better every week, Jones added. We had an opportunity to win at half-time, but we didn’t give them a chance to get into the game.

“So while the second half wasn’t our best, there were some really good things in the first half. This is part of our progress in the tournament.”

Few people know the Rugby World Cup better than Jones, who as head coach reached two finals and led Japan to their greatest ever result, victory over South Africa. There will be bigger problems than in Georgia, but Australia won’t want to peak too early. It’s a long tournament, and Jones plans to stay there as long as he can. A few shouts won’t put him off.

Rugby World Cup – Taulupe Faletau returns for Wales for RWC

Taulupe Faletau will make his first Wales appearance since last year’s Six Nations after returning from injury against opening Rugby World Cup opponents Fiji.

Jack Morgan, who will captain the team, and Aaron Wainwright will join Faletau in the back row, but Morgan co-captain Dewey Lake will not feature for matchday 23. Lake suffered a knee injury during Wales’ defeat to England at Twickenham last month.

Wales head coach Warren Gatland said: The medical team have done a fantastic job getting Dewey back to full fitness. He hasn’t had as much training as the other hookers since he took the knock to the knee, so we’ve got Ryan Elias and Elliot Dee for this game.

Warren Gatland makes huge calls as team is named

Warren Gatland has named his Wales team to face Fiji today after the squad arrived in Bordeaux. The starting line-up includes five players who made their Rugby World Cup debuts. Five more players are preparing for their first appearance at the Rugby World Cup from the bench. Co-captain Dewey Lake is not included in the squad due to lack of training time following an injury.

Jack Morgan leads the team at open side flanker. He is joined in the back row by Aaron Wainwright at blindside and Taulupe Faletau, who returns at number 8 and won his 101st cap, most recently playing in the Six Nations against tournament hosts France. George North is making his 17th appearance at the Rugby World Cup in his fourth tournament. He partners Nick Thompkins in the Welsh midfield.

Gareth Davies is picked during the scrum half and Dan Biggar is picked in the second half. Both are competing in their third global tournament. Davies has featured in each of Wales’ last 12 RWC games in the 2015 and 2019 competitions, while Biggar is on the cusp of reaching 100 Rugby World Cup points (currently 97 points).

Wales to face Fiji: Liam Williams; Louis Rees-Zammit, George North, Nick Tompkins, Josh Adams; Dan Biggar, Gareth Davis; Gareth Thomas, Ryan Elias, Thomas Francis, Will Rowlands, Adam Bird, Aaron Wainwright, Jack Morgan (c), Taulupe Faletau.

Replacements: Elliot Dee, Corey Domachowski, Dillon Lewis, Dafydd Jenkins, Tommy Reffell, Tomos Williams, Sam Costelow, Rio Dyer.

Eddie Jones makes shock call for Rugby World Cup

Eddie Jones’ penchant for the unexpected and taking high risks will continue into the Rugby World Cup after Ben Donaldson named him at fullback for Australia’s opening match. Donaldson, 24, widely considered lucky to make the Australia Rugby World Cup squad ahead of Quade Cooper after a disappointing Super Rugby season with the Waratahs.

But Jones remained fascinated by his potential, regularly praising his training performances at both full-back and as a five-eighth. Donaldson, who played three Tests, selected over the reliable Andrew Kellaway for the decider against Georgia in Paris on Sunday (AEST).

In his first start at No. 15, he provides Australia with another hitting option following Carter Gordon’s recent struggles off the tee. The Wallabies are winless under Jones in 2023 and another defeat would be devastating to their chances of reaching the quarter-finals.

Seventeen of the 23 players selected will be playing in their first Rugby World Cup match and the team’s Test match cap total is 343, Australia’s fewest at a World Cup since the 2003 match against Namibia in Adelaide (283). For more about Wales Rugby World Cup Tickets please visit our website.

“Andrew is the right choice. We just sympathized with this game. Donno gives us the coverage we need,” Jones said. He trained with us for six to eight weeks, mostly in a full-back role rather than 10. His shots on goal were at a high level, which obviously gives us two (options) per game. With Nick White on the bench, that gives us three.” for Game. This is an area we needed to support, hence the choice.”

Wallabies Unleash Strong Line-Up for Rugby World Cup Opener

The Australians’ hopes further boosted as center Samu Kerevi declared fit to start. Prop Taniela Tupou will make her 50th appearance for the Wallabies with an unchanged forward line-up from the one France thrashed in the last warm-up match.

“We have a really big, strong and fast team ready to take on the opposition, and that starts with Georgia, Jones said. I never would have thought I would walk into a press conference as Australia coach and say we have a huge team that can dominate the Rugby World Cup, and we have it. We intend to use this to our advantage.”

Georgia named nine players, including captain Merab Sharikadze, who faced the Wallabies at the 2019 Rugby World Cup and lost 27-8 in Fukuroy. The rest include scrum-half Vasil Lobzhanidze, number 8 Beka Gorgadze and lock Konstantin Mikautadze. Six are from the starting XV for Rugby Club in France, including forwards Po Guram Papidze and Beka Gorgadze.

Luka Ivanishvili is on the open flank after appearing everywhere except the back row during the Rugby World Cup warm-up. He made his eighth cap while regular opener Beka Saginadze remains sidelined with injury. Georgia’s main threat comes from right winger Akaki Tabutsadze, who has scored 10 tries in eight Tests this year, including two braces and a hat-trick with AP.

WALLABIES (15-1): Ben Donaldson, Mark Navaganitawase, Jordan Petaia, Samu Kerevi, Marika Koroibete, Carter Gordon, Tate McDermott, Rob Valetini, Fraser McWright, Tom Hooper, Will Skelton (c), Richie Arnold, Taniela Tupou, Dave Poretsky, Angus Bell

Jones brings in Donaldson for Kellaway in Australia’s Rugby World Cup opener

Coach Eddie Jones, who has previously compared his team to a broken-down Datsun, says the Wallabies are now worthy of Formula One as they count down to their Rugby World Cup opener against Georgia in Paris.

Jones continued his trend of shock selections for the sold-out Stade de France pool match on Saturday (Sunday AEST), naming Ben Donaldson for his first Test start at fullback ahead of Andrew Kellaway. Jones admitted he needed more shooting opportunities after first choice Carter Gordon scored just one in five against France in the RWC warm-up.

“Andrew is the right choice; Just felt this game, Dono gives us the coverage we need, Jones said. His [Donaldson’s] kicking on target was at a high level, which obviously gives us two kickers and with Nick White on the bench it gives us three. This is an area that we needed to support a little bit, so we chose.”

Backline key player Samu Kerevi recovered from a hand injury and returned in the number 12 shirt, along with Jordan Petaia, Mark Navaganitawase and Marika Koroibete as wingers, while Gordon and Tate McDermott paired again in the halves.

Wallabies Ready to Rev Up Their Rugby World Cup Campaign

Jones hopes the NRL recruits Suliasi Vunivalu to get some punch off the bench after impressing for France. The Wallabies’ forward line-up remained unchanged, with stalwart prop Taniela Tupou playing his 50th Test and Will Skelton captaining the team.

After their defeat to Argentina in Sydney in July, Jones compared the Wallabies to his first car, a Datsun 1200, and described how he would fix one part only to have another break shortly after. But he said the team is now operating at full capacity.

We’re ready to go, mate, in Formula One – whatever car you love in Formula One, the fastest one, we’re almost ready to take off, mate, Jones said. Now we are at the starting line, and now everyone starts from the same point.

“This is really good progress. We went through a period where we had to almost restructure the team to get ourselves into a position where we think we can win the Rugby World Cup. This is the first step against Georgia a very important game.”

Australia have not won the William Webb Ellis Trophy since 1999 and will hope to improve on their performance in the 2019 quarter-finals in Japan. Georgia named nine players, including captain Merab Sharikadze, who lost 27-8 to the Wallabies in a clash at the 2019 tournament in Japan.

Rugby World Cup – Wales agree RWC kit change in move applauded by World Rugby

Wales agreed to host the Rugby World Cup to change kit for the game against Portugal, a move that was met with applause from World Rugby. Wales’ second pool match of the Rugby World Cup 2023 will be played at the Stade de Nice on Saturday 16 September and the teams have only met once before; during the 1995 RWC qualifying round when Wales won 102–11 in Lisbon.

Rugby World Cup fans from all over the world are called to book Rugby World Cup 2023 tickets from our online platform eticketing.co Rugby fans can book Wales Vs Australia Tickets on our website at exclusively discounted prices.

The kit change by both teams will part of the steps taken for the Rugby World Cup, with a focus on inclusiveness, safety and fun, as World Rugby rules on color blindness in rugby become policy from 2025. Approximately one in 12 men suffers from some form of skin color. blindness associated with green and red is the cause of most of the problems – the numbers are much lower at about one in 200 among women.

In September 2021, World Rugby published their guidelines for color blindness in rugby, which developed in partnership with Color Blind Awareness (CBA), a non-profit organization that raises awareness of the needs of people with color blindness in society. Since then, World Rugby has taken steps to incorporate its own leadership into various activities and events.

For the Rugby World Cup 2023, World Rugby worked closely with participating unions and the CBA to encourage certain kit combinations to avoid kit conflicts where kit colors appear too similar to those of people with color blindness due to a lack of sufficient color contrast. or design – where possible, taking into account production and commercial considerations.

Uniform Clash Averted

In the Group C match Wales vs Portugal, alternate kits are still a problem as there is not enough difference between colors. The organizers felt that Wales’ alternate black uniform could conflict with Portugal’s basic crimson uniform.

RWC Tickets

Both teams confirmed that they would each wear their alternate uniforms in support of the cause, which met with applause from World Rugby as a positive manifestation of the sport’s values. Other participating teams have also pledged to show their support by wearing alternate jerseys in select games including Georgia, Ireland, Tonga and the South.

The Rugby World Cup says: Kit testing done at the same time as broadcast kit testing in early 2023 on each RWC 2023 team’s primary and alternate kits, as well as match officials’ uniforms, to ensure maximum contrast between both teams’ uniforms and match officials . In some cases, the preferred kit combinations have changed due to perceived lack of contrast due to broadcast reasons for all viewers.

“Taking into account the well-being of the players, uniforms were also considered not only from the point of view of fans watching on TV or in the stadium, but also from the point of view of color-blind players and match officials.”

Off the field, steps have also taken to provide sufficient color differentiation in areas such as ticketing, accreditation, venues and directional signs, digital platforms and others.

Wales names first Rugby World Cup squad without any Joneses

For decades, Welsh rugby fans have celebrated the success of their national team, and homegrown heroes with names like Jones, Davies and Williams have set the field on fire. But now Men in Red supporters in the face of a bleak Rugby World Cup may be wondering if the team’s recent decline can blamed on the Joneses no longer keeping up.

Wales Vs Australia Tickets | RWC Tickets
Wales Vs Australia Tickets | RWC Tickets

For the first time in Rugby World Cup history, the Wales squad, named last month, has no Joneses. Five Joneses started the RWC in 2003, but lost them almost two decades later. There have been 77 male Joneses for the national team over the years.

Former captain Alan Wyn Jones remains their highest scoring international with 21 appearances in the Rugby World Cup alone. Jones, 37, has played 158 times for Wales and also made 12 Tests for the British and Irish Lions.

He captained Wales 48 times, including the 2019 Six Nations where he named a Grand Slam player. But Robert Jones, who made 54 appearances for the team in his career, became Wales’ first Jones at the Rugby World Cup, playing in his debut tournament in 1987. For more about Wales Rugby World Cup Tickets please visit our website.

The team had two Joneses in 2019, compared to one in 2015. But there were four Joneses in 2011 and five Joneses selected in 2007 and 2003. In 1999 there was a duo of Joneses: one in 1995 and two Joneses. in 1991. Rugby historian Hugh Richards said that the Joneses have a great legacy in Wales and the Welsh see themselves as part of the team.

The Evolution of Welsh Surnames

According to him, generations will have their favorites. The dying number of people named Jones on the Rugby World Cup team comes amid a general decline. Forebears estimates that the number of Joneses in the country has fallen from 11 percent to 5 percent since 1881.

Wales Vs Australia Tickets | RWC Tickets
Wales Vs Australia Tickets | RWC Tickets

It became popular in Wales when biblical names adopt en masse across Europe and pagan names like Albus and Imbolc replaced by Christian names like John about 500 years ago. And in 1542, when Henry VIII united England and Wales by Act of Parliament, the Welsh had to adopt fixed surnames in order to interact with the British legal framework.

The Welsh used their father’s name to satisfy this claim. Thus, Jones, being a derivative of John, adopted as a surname, leading to a glut of John Jones. Another factor contributing to the decline in the number of Joneses in the Welsh squad is the growing number of foreign-born players who have become Welsh citizens.

This year’s squad includes Taulupe Faletau, born in Tonga, Krist Tshiunza, born in Congo, and Gareth Anscombe, born in New Zealand. Faletau arrived in Wales at the age of seven and has since become one of the most celebrated players in Welsh rugby. He has played in three previous World Cups and has 100 caps to his name.

He was the first Pacific Islander to play for Wales in 2011 against the Barbarians. Faletau called up to the Wales senior team for the first time on 1 November 2010 following the departures of Ryan Jones and Rob McCusker. George North and Henry Thomas also made the lineup, despite both being born in England.

Plunged into spying controversy

Mr Richards told the BBC: It would be surprising if no one named Jones ever played for Wales in rugby again. The Rugby World Cup has plunged into espionage controversy this year over fears that some teams will use espionage tactics in France.

Wales Vs Australia Tickets | RWC Tickets
Wales Vs Australia Tickets | RWC Tickets

It is understood that the top Tier 1 country has approached World Rugby for clarification on sanctions against any team found to be espionage. Any advantage of such tactics could prove decisive in what is expected to be the most competitive Rugby World Cup since 1987.

In addition, The Telegraph reports that there is a perception that international teams have been spying on training in recent years. The World Cup tournament kicks off on Friday when France play New Zealand and ends with the final on October 28th.

Rugby World Cup – Gatland holds Wales press conference at RWC  and decides team

Wales head coach Warren Gatland has announced the good health of his team members at the Rugby  World Cup ahead of the decisive match against Fiji. Captain Dewi Lake and No. 8 Taulupe Faletau were among the few players treated for injuries during RWC warm-up tests in Wales.

No. 8 Faletau did not feature in these matches due to calf problems and Hooker Lake left the field with a knee injury during Wales’ loss to England at Twickenham. Ryan Elias, Daffyd Jenkins and Gareth Anscombe have also recovered and are ready to take part in Sunday’s Group C match in Bordeaux.

“The last couple of weeks we’ve had a few issues with eight or ten players not fully participating in training, Gatland said. Nothing serious, just a few hits. They all went through rehabilitation, and now they are all healthy. fits and it’s a positive place for us.”

Faletau’s Recovery for Rugby World Cup

He (Faletau) has fully involved in training for the last three weeks. There is no doubt that in the first week he blew very hard in terms of some of the standard activities that the boys performed for several weeks.

“It took a little while, but we kept a close eye on his GPS data and it turned out to be excellent for him. Even though he didn’t run, he trained a lot without legs. Some jobs on the field are harder than on the field, and he’s definitely in contention for the weekend.”

Lake left in the first half at Twickenham and the prostitute added: It always comes to mind when you get injured in the 20th minute of a game. I am very grateful to be sitting here and to the medical staff who helped me get through this three weeks at home and the coaching staff who chose me after the injury.

A lot of hard work has done behind the scenes to get me ready for this weekend. Wales trained in temperatures in excess of 30 degrees on Tuesday, while the forecast for Sunday’s kick-off match is predict to be 28 degrees, although the game won’t start until 9pm local time.

Water Breaks Considered

It is understood that Rugby World Cup organizer consider water breaks during the first round of the pool competition. We would like to play in the park as often as possible. We think we are in pretty good physical shape, Gatland said.

“From this point of view, we are not going to give up water breaks if so decided. We will not argue with World Rugby over this decision.”

This will be the fifth consecutive Rugby World Cup for Wales and Fiji to meet in the pool stage, and Sunday’s winners will take a significant step towards the quarter-finals. Fiji just picked up a remarkable away victory against England and many believe they have beaten the Wales side with just three wins in 13 Tests.

“I think they did an excellent job at Twickenham, added Gatland. They have great athletes, we know that. Now they are much more structured as a team than they have traditionally been in the past.”

We must also impose our game on them. We know they are a good team at the moment and most of their team plays in Super Rugby and also in France. It will be an exciting challenge. They always had world class individual athletes who could open the game. But having such an organization and structure makes them more dangerous.

I think that from a coaching point of view, the world championship is the highest achievement. This is the only time in the international windows when you are fully prepared. It feels like you’re working with the club team on pre-season pre-season. Over the past few months, we have managed to work on many things in terms of detailing and strategizing.

Rugby World Cup: Wales not keeping up with Joneses in 2023 squad

Tom, Catherine Zeta and Alan Veen – they all have one thing in common. The name Jones is synonymous with famous Welshmen, but for the first time in the history of the Rugby World Cup, the Wales team will not have a single person on their team.

Although at one point in 2004 the Wales team had six Jones starting in the game, nearly 20 years later they are not keeping up with the Joneses at the Rugby World Cup in France. This name introduced in Wales as biblical names force on the Welsh about 500 years ago.

There have been 77 male Joneses on Welsh rugby jerseys over the years, with former captain Alan Wyn Jones being their highest scoring international and making the most World Cup appearances with 21 in four tournaments. For more about Wales Rugby World Cup Tickets please visit our website.

Who are the Joneses’ in Welsh Rugby World Cup squads?

Former midfielder Stephen Jones has also appeared in four Rugby World Cups, while props Adam and scrum half-back Robert have played in three, and Rob was Wales’ first Jones at the RWC in the first tournament in 1987. Wyn Jones, Derwyn Jones, Daffyd Jones, Mark Jones, Duncan Jones, Ryan Jones, Hugh Williams-Jones and Jason Jones-Hughes round out the list of 12 Welsh Jones to grace the Rugby World Cup.

In 2003 there were four – Adam, Daffyd, Mark and Steven, and in 2007 – five – Adam, Duncan, Alan Wien, Steven and Mark. While there were four in 2011—Adam, Ryan, Steven, and Alan Veen—in 2015, only the evergreen second row arrived, and in 2019, along with prop Vinom.

It is in 2000s when the Wales men’s rugby teams seem to be fill to capacity with Jones boys. There were five of them at the 2007 Rugby World Cup in France and six in one game against South Africa in Cardiff in 2004 – that’s 40% of the starting lineup!

Rugby historian Hugh Richards said the Joneses have a huge legacy in Wales and the Welsh see themselves as a team. Generations will have their favorites, he said. The 77 red jersey Jones outnumber those named Davis and Williams, according to Mr Richards – along with senior internationals Ken, Cliff and Lewis Jones, who are all in the Wales sports hall of fame.

Why so many Joneses in Wales?

It was not until about 500 years ago that the Welsh began using fixed surnames before using ap, meaning son, to define patronage, according to historians at the National Museum of Wales. When they told they needed to use fixed names, they used their father’s name. If you were John and your father was Gruffydd, you would be John Griffiths. If your father was John, you would be John Jones and so on.

At the same time, across Europe, there was a period of streamlining and simplification of Christian names, which meant that hundreds of ancient pagan names such as Llivarch and Gvalhmai lost, and people called their children safe biblical names.

Thus, people forced to take fixed surnames at the same time that hundreds and hundreds of fathers received the name John, which meant many John Jones. Perhaps the most famous Jones to play for Wales is Alan Wyn Jones, who retired earlier this year.

A Rugby World Cup Dream

For Dan Biggar, the Rugby World Cup has always been a dream. The prospect of representing Wales on the grandest stage of international rugby has fueled his passion for the game. With the tournament now on the horizon, Biggar’s enthusiasm is palpable.

Speaking to reporters, Biggar expressed his excitement, saying, As a kid, you always dream of representing your country in a Rugby World Cup. But, it’s the pinnacle of the sport, and it’s a dream come true for all of us.”

Leadership on and off the Field

Biggar’s influence extends beyond his performances on the field. As one of the team’s senior players, he embraces a leadership role and relishes the opportunity to guide and inspire his younger teammates. However, his dedication to training and preparation is exemplary, setting high standards for the entire squad.

Wales’ head coach, Wayne Pivac, values Biggar’s leadership qualities and commitment to the team’s goals. Dan leads by example, Pivac said. He brings a level of intensity and focus that is contagious. He’s a key figure in our squad, both on and off the pitch.

Wales name Jac Morgan and Dewi Lake as co-captains for tournament

Manager Warren Gatland has named flanker Jack Morgan and prostitute Dewey Lake as co-captains of the Rugby World Cup in France. They will lead a 33-man team that only includes two grappling specialists, Tomos Williams and Gareth Davis, with Kieran Hardy not counted.

The squad includes injured players Taulupe Faletau and Gareth Anscombe. Wales will open the Group C campaign against Fiji in Bordeaux on 10 September. But, group games are ahead against Portugal, Australia and Georgia.

Props Included are Corey Domachowski and Henry Thomas, who won their first caps for Wales during the Summer Series this August, while 20-year-old Exeter’s Daffyd Jenkins is the youngest member of the squad. The roster included 16 players who did not participate in the World Championships.

The 48-man extended roster did not include 15 players: Caeron Assiratti, Ben Carter, Rhys Davis, Kemsley Matias, Sam Parry, Thane Plumtree, Teddy Williams, Alex Cuthbert, Kai Evans, Kieran Hardy, Max Llewellyn, Joe Roberts, Tom Rogers, Keiran Williams and Owen Williams.

Co-captains, scrum-half surprise

Gatland has signaled he will consider co-captainship. But, these young appointments bring back memories of how 22-year-old Sam Warburton named to the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand with Gatland in charge to reach the semi-finals.

However, Wales lost the experience of former captains Alan Wyn Jones, Justin Tipurik and Ken Owens to retirements and injuries. Morgan and Lloyd played 20 caps together. Morgan captained Wales in two of the three warm-up games, the first win over England at Cardiff and the final loss to South Africa, while Hooker Lake led the team in a loss to England at Twickenham.

“These are two young players who complement each other well, Gatland said. They are good comrades and have a good relationship. This is a good opportunity. This is something I have never done before. They have a great future ahead of them.”

Wales chose only two professional scrum halfbacks, Williams and Davies. The last time Wales played only two halves of scrimmage at the Rugby World Cup was in 2003, with striker Shane Williams filling in as number nine as a third option.

Gatland’s Calculated Risks: Wales’ Squad for the Rugby World Cup

This allowed Gatland to appoint an additional defender: Lee Halfpenny is preparing for his third Rugby World Cup alongside George North, who will be the fifth Welsh player to feature in four global tournaments after Gareth Thomas, Stephen Jones, Gethin Jenkins and Alan Wyn Jones.

If we do find injuries, then it’s not that far off, Gatland said. From the very beginning, we discussed with the players that the turning point could be if we take two nines or three tens. But, there is no certainty that someone would be selected in the composition. There is potentially a point where you will have to give in and look a little deeper.

“Probably all this time we were thinking about three nines and we were just looking at some depth of our back three and embracing players who are progressing a bit and whether they can retreat in all games. We just wanted a little more cover in this back three.”

Gatland indicated that if one of the scrimmage linebackers was injured during the warm-up of the game, then Scarlets linebacker Sam Costelow could act as number nine cover. If we have a head injury assessment and someone is missing, then we potentially have to make a decision about whether we call someone up, Gatland said.

“We know we took risks. Other teams did the same. You have a weak spot in terms of numbers, but those nines (Davis and Williams) have been strong and we’re sure they’ll be fine. If we get an HIA, we will need to look at it, fix the problem and see what happens.”

Injury issues

There are currently up to seven players on Gatland’s roster worrying ahead of the first Rugby World Cup match against Fiji in Bordeaux on 10 September. But Midfielder Anscombe and No. 8 Faletau are the only team members who did not feature in any of the three warm-up games.

Hookers Lake and Ryan Elias, as well as Lock Daffyd Jenkins, injured during Wales’ home and away games against England and are struggling to prepare for the game against Fiji. Midfielder Dan Biggar (defender) and defender Liam Williams (hamstring) pulled out of the defeat in South Africa with minor issues, taking what described as precautionary measures.

There are only three special locks in Will Rowlands, Adam Beard and Jenkins, while Krist Tshiunza has added another second row option, but can also play on the back row. The New Scarlets, who had signed Thain Plumtree, suffered a shoulder injury against England at Twickenham, robbing the back five of their chance of selection.

Thane was out of luck, Gatland said. Over the next few weeks, you’ll probably be looking at the number of players that will be able to take part in practices and some live sessions. Unfortunately, in this regard, he drew a short straw. I spoke to him this morning and told him to be ready in case the opportunity arises. Last week I spoke with him about the situation he is in because of the injury. It was always difficult to decide if we would take him.

The program, which will air on BBC One Wales on Monday night, promises to deep into his behind-the-scenes life, exposing everything from his rugby career to the money and sponsorship deals that go hand in hand with brand influence.

Kiwi media write off Wales

The Kiwi media predict that New Zealander Warren Gatland will oversee the exit from the group stage of the Rugby World Cup. Major news outlet Stuff.nz asked its writers to predict which team would suffer the biggest flop at the RWC, and two well-known journalists cheered for Gatland’s team.

Gatland won’t mind being written off by his countrymen, believing the underdog title would suit Wales, who he insists can do something special. Rugby correspondent Steffan Thomas predicted this week that Wales would reach the semi-finals. You can read his thoughts here.

But those who are on the other side of the world have a different opinion. Mark Hinton of Stuff wrote: It seems like there is a tight fight going on between England, Wales and Australia right now. Failing to make it out of their group will lead to a title failure and I see Warren Gatland’s wobbly team trip over the first hurdle and repeat history in 2007.

Richard Knowler was even more categorical, stating: Wales. They will not advance from Group C as the Wallabies and Fiji take care of Warren Gatland’s men. It will be a shame because the Welsh fans deserve more; their passion and singing is a huge plus in the international game. Unfortunately, they won’t be heard across the Channel during the playoffs.

Wales star becomes a first-time dad just two days before leaving for Rugby World Cup duty

Wales star Ryan Elias became a father just two days before departure for the Rugby World Cup. The prostitute left for France with her teammates on Sunday after being named to Warren Gatland’s latest team of 33, two days after he and his wife Meg gave birth to their first child at the last minute. child – Hattie Grace Elias.

He’s not the only Gatland team member to welcome a rookie ahead of the Rugby World Cup his teammate Josh Adams and his wife Georgia welcomed Boden boy Alec Adams last month.

Wallabies’ rising star keen to make up for lost time at Rugby World Cup

Angus Bell, a Wallaby front-row player, is looking forward to what he hopes is a prolific Rugby World Cup after his debut test season in 2022 derailed by injury. He has attracted attention this year for his outstanding performances and has already established himself as one of the best badass players in the game.

His quick rise to the top veteran front-row James Slipper, who originally name one of Wallaby head coach Eddie Jones co-captains, moved to the bench.

Made his presence felt at Test level

Bell, who made his Test debut against the All Blacks in Brisbane in 2020, has made a comeback despite Australia’s poor run of form ahead of the Rugby World Cup as they still haven’t won in five Tests played this year. Despite his superb form, the 22-year-old’s life has not always been so rosy, with injuries hampering his promising career.

A foot injury crippled his 2022 Test season and earlier this year he aggravated the injury again and forced off the field after just 20 minutes in the Super Rugby Pacific Waratahs’ opening game against the Brumbies in Sydney. Rugby fans can book Wales Rugby World Cup Tickets  on our website at exclusively discounted prices.

“I didn’t think (I would make it to the World Cup), I thought it would be a longer term injury, Bell told Rugby Australia’s official website. I did it three times. I thought the Rugby World Cup was something I could attend or maybe not, but I took it day in and day out.”

In those 12 months, when I only played two or three games, I just said to myself just try to get better every day, enjoy the process that Nela helped, and then, whatever happens, happens.

I’m just happy to be here and have the opportunity to improve and play for Australia. Although he has limited his playing time due to injuries, Bell’s game is still developing by leaps and bounds.

Nick Bell: A Rising Star in Australian Rugby World Cup team

Despite his short stint in that game against the Brumbies, Bell made a big impact and attracted the attention of Jones, who still kept him in the Wallabies throughout his recovery, and named him to the bench for the Australia Test against Argentina to Sydney.

A brilliant cameo appearance on the bench earned him the opportunity to play in Melbourne’s first Bledisloe Cup test, where he was arguably Australia’s best player due to his superior ball-handling ability. It’s always been one of Bell’s strengths, but Wallabies forward coach Neil Hatley was more impressed with his application outside of that.

I think everyone who watched “Belli” knows that he knows how to hold the ball, Hatley said. As for me, there are other things that I found really interesting in what he does. I think it was his best defense against France. He made the most carries in our group of forwards (14 carries), but he was good defensively, much better at the mauls and hitting.

The areas he was targeting and he really worked his hardest, we are starting to see really good transfers, which is great for developing other parts of the game like the scrum.

“For me, the most enjoyable aspect is the work he does off the ball. That’s what this team is going to need, and that’s what the players on this team appreciate: not just what you do in those brief moments with the ball, but how you add value throughout the game without the ball. I think that’s where he makes his biggest strides.”

Rugby League Loyalty: Cameron Murray’s Stance Amid Rugby World Cup Buzz

Cameron Murray recently put an end to ongoing rumours regarding a potential switch to rugby union, reaffirming his commitment to the National Rugby League NRL. Despite consistent speculation and being a target for Rugby Australia, Murray firmly secured his place with the South Sydney Rabbitohs, signing a substantial five-year extension. Wallabies coach Eddie Jones failed to present a tangible contract offer, and Murray’s focus remains solely on the NRL, a choice that keeps him in the league until 2028, a year following the Rugby World Cup.

Throughout speculation, Murray’s annoyance grew due to the lack of any direct communication or negotiation from RWC circles. He admitted that the constant buzz surrounding a potential switch became tiresome. Nevertheless, he recognized the flattering aspect of being considered for such a transition.

As they prepare to face off against the Sydney Roosters, Murray acknowledges the significance of the upcoming match of the Rugby World Cup. Not only does it present an opportunity to test his mettle against formidable opponents, but it also carries extra weight due to the intense rivalry between the two teams. Murray emphasizes their commitment to playing their best and dismisses any thoughts of potential losses.

Amid relentless speculations about a potential Rugby World Cup transition, Cameron Murray expressed his irritation. Wallabies coach Eddie Jones failed to provide a concrete contract offer, leaving Murray frustrated by the lack of substantial communication. Instead, he solidified his position in the NRL by extending his contract with South Sydney for five years.

Choosing Australia’s NRL Continuity Over Rugby World Cup

Despite being frequently linked with a switch to RWC Cameron Murray remained resolute in his commitment to the NRL. The South Sydney Rabbitohs player dismissed the idea of leaving the team he had a schoolboy connection with, further emphasizing his dedication to the league.

Australia’s attention was repeatedly drawn to Cameron Murray, marked as a prime target for RWC. However, their high-profile NRL recruitment campaign yielded limited results, securing only Sydney Roosters talent Joseph Suaalii. The attention on Murray eventually subsided as he extended his contract, effectively closing the door on a potential cross-code move.

Cameron Murray’s renewed contract with the South Sydney Rabbitohs guarantees his NRL presence until 2028. This timing coincides with the Rugby World Cup hosted by the Wallabies in the following year. Murray affirmed that he never received communication from rugby union and expressed contentment in having his next five years settled.

With his future secure, Cameron Murray shifts his focus to the immediate challenge of reviving the South Sydney Rabbitohs’ finals aspirations. Their upcoming match against the Sydney Roosters holds immense significance, offering a chance to prove themselves in RWC against formidable adversaries. Murray’s determination lies in playing their best game, disregarding doubts and concentrating on achieving the desired outcome.

Australia’s Coach Eddie Jones: RWC Potential for Unforgettable Moments

Australia’s coach Eddie Jones anticipates that the upcoming Rugby World Cup has the potential to create lasting memories for everyone involved. The excitement surrounding the tournament is palpable as teams prepare to showcase their prowess on the global stage.

As Australia’s team gets ready to share a pool with the Flying Fijians in the upcoming RWC in France, Eddie Jones took note of Fiji’s remarkable 30-22 win over England at Twickenham. This unexpected outcome prompted Jones to acknowledge Fiji’s performance and its implications for the broader competition.

Eddie Jones celebrated Fiji’s victory with enthusiasm, using the Fijian greeting Bula bula and commending the team’s achievement. He characterized Fiji’s win over England as a significant development, particularly for what were previously considered Tier Two countries. The triumph not only boosts the competition for RWC but also contributes to the growth of Fijian rugby, enhancing the overall quality of the upcoming tournament.

Known for his candid communication style, Eddie Jones emphasized that Fiji’s victory at Twickenham lays a strong foundation for the Rugby World Cup. The result underscores the unpredictability and competitiveness that will characterize the tournament, enhancing its appeal to fans and participants alike.
